Anonymous said: Can I ask why you ship Skoulson?
Of course you can!
Short answer: I love relationships between equals where there is constant respect and emotional support, where being around the other makes the characters the best version of themselves. I love relationships between people who share a view of the world and people who despite external appearances and different life experiences are very much alike. I love pairings where both of them challenge the other constantly and they help each other become better people. I love relationships without sexist cliches attached and I love relationships where gender roles are subverted or directly nonexistent and Skye/Coulson does both. i love equal partnerships and trust and “two people against the world” ships. I love relationships where the narrative uses structure and mirrors and metaphors and parallels to despict said relationship and the show does this with Skye and Coulson. Because I love Skye with a passion and her relationship with Coulson has supported and propped her and has only been positive to the character and her role in the story. Because Skye is Coulson’s hero.
Long answer: Here.
Today someone asked me why I shipped Skoulson again (they asked nicely, btw) and I directed them to this post.
Ah ha ha what are other ships amirite
This show has other ships? What???
Does LIFE have other ships????
I don’t know. I can’t help it, I ship them SO hard, even though it’s really painful for me to do so right now. I CAN’T SHUT IT OFF, what are they even doing.
No, but really there are no other ships. Homeless young woman of color becomes the hero of white middle aged government worker and together they have to unravel a fucking intergalactic conspiracy related to her birth, his death, and the mysterious alien goo in their sexy, sexy bodies. (While flirting, madly, from episode one.)
WHO DOES THAT? No one does that. (THIS FUCKING SHOW.)
complete with the most gorgeous imagery ever and the greatest parallels.
WHY ISN’T THIS THE MOST POPULAR PAIRING EVER
Also Chloe and Clark have amazing chemistry together! Like how can the writers/creators not use it to its full potential.
